Text Box: Focal Point for Communications
A Benchmark team of qualified Project Managers will work with the company's personnel to develop a work plan, establish communications, develop procedures, determine reporting formats, and plan a sequence of work to be performed.  All Departments involved including Marketing/Sales, Engineering, Operations, Accounting, Materials, and Construction will provide input and direction for the project plan.  Experienced effective management during construction ensures proper and efficient project completion.  Managers are on site to quickly and efficiently handle questions, issues, or conflicts during construction, and offer intelligent, experienced solutions for work completion.
 
Proactive Planning & Execution
 To establish control of a project, there must be a clear definition of the project and its goals.  Prior to commencing work on a project, a work plan is needed to provide a baseline for the goals of the project, and how these goals are to be accomplished.  The work plan should consist of the three important criteria, (scope, schedule and budget) which will define the framework for achieving the project goals.
 
 
Scope, Schedule & Budget
There must be a scope of work that defines the tasks necessary to accomplish the goals, and dictate to the bidders the responsibilities involved to complete the contracts.    
In developing a schedule, the most important date is the END DATE.  All the financial projections, estimated costs, downtime requirements, and financial planning is based on this one date.  Typical project scheduling is dynamic, and moves the dates, including END DATE, based on what is currently happening on the project.  Benchmark implements a Target Schedule, in which the dates (especially the END DATE) never change.  This schedule is then distributed out to everyone involved in the program.  the management of the program only has 3 options when it comes to schedule reporting (1. on , 2. ahead , 3. behind ) schedule.  Then management must adjust what they are doing to get the Program back onto the Target Schedule.  The budget establishes a benchmark for total project costs, and enables the project to be inputted into the financial plan so that funding can be secured and reserved.
 
Tracking & Resource Leveling 
Provide a main focal point for all persons involved in the project by maintaining communications, scheduling construction tasks, evaluating and allocating resources to ensure no conflicts during construction.
 
 
 
Project Controls & Quality Assurance
A defined and formatted reporting system is imperative to success of the Program.  Status reporting throughout the life of the Program needs to be easily understood and comparable for progress measurements.  Schedule tracking is important to determine how you are progressing and for planning what you have left to do.  Budget tracking and rectifying is essential to keep monitored to ensure if any problems occur and are identified and solved quickly.  In utilizing the schedule and budget project controls, the project Forecast Plan can be developed so that management is always looking down the road and preparing for the future tasks while the project operates smoothly because today's work was planned and prepared for.
